salvvat Mini documentary by Philip Bloom on Johannesburg's infamous tower - Ponte City Apartments -up on naf-asi.tumblr.com. If you get a chance also look for "Africa Shafted" by Ingrid Martens for another insight into the tallest residential building in Africa. #PonteTower #Johannesburg #SouthAfrica #afrikarchi 1w

stickylittleleaves This week, I'm grateful for the wisdom of children, who have a knack for redeeming even the toughest work challenges or the most hectic living circumstances.
Pictured here are little munchkins from #pontetower. They roam the 54 stories of the building, and among the rubbish (we were nearly hit by a falling diaper) they keep whimsy alive and well. Here they were looking up and imagining an airplane was passing overhead.
My other #stickylittleleaves of the week include iced coffee (again), friends who care enough to have tough conversations, and a successful surgery for my mom! Here's to a gratitude-filled week, @instagram!

xarchitecture ______________________________________
Most racial architectural
example I have ever
encountered - PONTE TOWER
On outer circle of the building
were apartments only for white
People, while black residents
Had this view.
